If you know me, I love nature, hikes and waterfalls. When I know that Langkawi has a famous waterfall called Seven Wells or Telaga Tujuh Waterfalls, I was so excited! Since it was near the Langkawi Skybridge, I decided to put that in the itinerary.
They say that you can walk from Oriental Village, where the cable car is. However, I drove to the nearby village there and started the short trekking. There is only 1 road there, so simply follow the road to get there. You will pass by a horse stable on your left.
At the end of the road, you will see a car park with a small village. The parking fee is RM2 per car. From the car park, you will see a small village. Just walk upwards towards the waterfall. The hike will take you to the base of the waterfall, about an 8min hike.
If you dream of dipping yourself into clear spring waters, or to chill under the rushing waters, you need to come here. The waterfall is pretty cool and you can hike down to the bottom to get into the water. It really reminds me of the Kawasan Falls in the Philippines because of the water and rushing currents.
If you are up for a challenge, hike up for another 10min and you will reach the peak of the waterfalls! It is very steep and like 400 steps to get up there. Swimming is allowed there, at your own risk!
So, legend has it that farriers would come to shower in the pool. There are 7 natural pools along the way to the peak, that is why it is a landmark here. If you are simply feeling too lazy, you can also see the waterfall from the cable car ride up. There are 7 “infinity pools” at the top and great for the summer getaway.
It is great for people who are keen on nature. The bottom of the waterfall is great for a nice swim in the summer heat. The middle part is perfect for families and a simple picnic. There are 2 huts there. The top part would be for hikers and adventure seekers, who want something more.

Wear proper footwear, especially if you are hiking to the peak. It is very steep and slippery, when it rains. It is not suitable for family trips to the top, but go if you can! Have fun and be safe.
